A Word from the Word

Phil. 4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”


The word care is synonymous with worry and concern. It also refers to things that distract. Life is full of distractions that will take our focus off the lives that God desires for us. The Scriptures are clear on how to deal with the worries of life. Christ has the ability and desire to take them upon Himself. When you release your cares and place them on God’s shoulders, then peace is the result. Don’t carry around the distractions that keep you from living in peace. Most of our worries come from things that may never come to pass, or things that we have no control over. Christ has shoulders that are broad enough to handle them for you. He loves you and desires to give you the peace of God that will keep your heart and mind.
